Freely adapted from the Chanel biography "L'Irreguliere" by Edmonde Charles-Roux, this is scripted by Fontaine and Christopher Hampton, Tautou will star as Coco Chanel in a biopic about the legendary French fashion designer. The film, which will focus on Chanel's childhood and early womanhood. The woman who invented French chic was born into poverty as Gabrielle Chanel, the illegitimate daughter of a traveling salesman, in 1883. After the death of her mother and abandonment by her father she spent seven years in a Catholic orphanage, where she learned to sew. But fashion wasn't her first career choice. As a young woman, Chanel had ambitions to be a singer and it was while warbling "Who's Seen Coco in the Trocadero" in a cabaret that she acquired the nickname Coco. While working as a cabaret singer, she also took to sewing the stage clothes for the likes of French cabaret star Mistinguette before being taken under the wing wealthy Balsan. His chateau became Chanel's home and her gateway to a new life. Balsan introduced her to Capel, who played a crucial role in Chanel's rise to fashion fame and fortune
